The purpose of this lesson is for students to become familiar with the ways that seeds vary in color, shape and size. They will dissect fruits to compare and classify their seeds and explore the structure and function of fruits and seeds by building models and making observations. They will also work with a variety of seeds to practice sorting, counting, addition and subtraction.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to practice measuring skills in the garden. Students will estimate the length of the garden beds and use standard and non-standard units of measurement to compare the sizes of different garden beds. Students will then partition beds into square feet to prepare beds for spring planting.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to prepare for spring planting. They will measure the garden beds and read seed packets for spacing requirements in order to determine the number of seeds needed for square foot gardening. They will also practice calculating the area of a garden bed and use a calendar to determine when to plant seeds for a certain harvest date.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to understand the many ways that gardeners and farmers use data to grow food successfully. Students will practice collecting data from their school garden and use it to create tables and graphs to communicate what they find. They will also solve real world number problems related to farming and gardening.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to calculate area and perimeter to determine how much mulch needs to be purchased for the school garden paths. Students will measure the area of the entire school garden, as well as that of each raised garden bed. They will use that information to calculate the area of the garden that needs to be mulched. They will also examine angles in the garden and prepare seed tape to be planted in the spring.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to understand how and why cooks need to adjust or scale their recipes.
